Global Stock Market Drivers

Asian stocks advanced to a six-week high on Thursday amid hopes of a slowdown in the US-China trade war and expectations that the European Central Bank (ECB) would kick off another wave of monetary easing by global central banks.

Chinese stocks rose and the yuan hit a three-week high after US President Donald Trump agreed to delay an additional increase in tariffs on Chinese goods by two weeks at the request of China's Vice Premier Liu He "as a gesture of good will."

The yen had rocketed towards a 2019 high in August as investors fretted about recession and market selloffs.

Trump's delay of additional tariffs on Chinese goods comes one day after China said it would exempt 16 types of US products from import tariffs.

Here are the important events to look forward to this week:

  • Japan's Industrial Production for July M-o-M
  • USA's Retail Sales for August and July Business Inventory
  • New Zealand's August PMI data.

Rupee Continues Momentum

On Thursday, the rupee continued its rebound against the US dollar after the Indian currency fell to its year's low of 72.40 against the greenback last week.

The domestic currency rose to one-month high of Rs 71.23, after opening at Rs 71.43.

On Wednesday, the rupee recovered from initial losses to settle higher by 5 paise at 71.66 against the US currency, extending gains for a fifth straight session on the back of firm domestic equities and Asian currencies like the Chinese yuan.

Reportedly, the uptick in domestic stocks enthused investors, following which the domestic unit gained strength and recovered from early losses.

Speaking of currencies, Vijay Bhambwani, editor of Weekly Cash Alerts, tells you the main reasons why not to trade commodities and currencies the same way you would trade equities. Here's an excerpt of what he wrote...

  • Currencies are traded in pairs and the most liquid is the USDINR. Currencies are traded in four decimal points just as bonds are. The international derivative trader's association has indicated that forex may be traded in 6 decimals in the coming few years.

    It takes months sometimes for the currency pair to pass the next round figure, say from 70 to 71.

    Can you really trade commodities and currencies alike or for that matter, equities and currencies alike? Definitely not!

To know more, you can read Vijay's entire article here: Is Trading in Equities, Commodities, and Currencies the Same?
